Young readers will further enjoy Phyllis Root’s marvelous Big Belching Bog by participating in some of the subject and resource modules offered in the following link created by the Irish Peatland Conservation Council. Click HERE and enjoy the following suggested subject modules – The Art Module in which bog art field studies and multisensory field investigations are described, the English Module in which word collecting and poetry lessons are presented, and the Science and Resource Modules, both of which suggest wonderful ways to make the vivid bog habitat come to life!

Also, National Geographic’s Xpeditions offers an expectionally informative creative lesson in which the child creates their very own bog habitat.  Links to fascinating sites such as eNature and the US Environmental Protection Agency offer rich visual references to guide the young environmentalist in their course of belching bog studies.
